Right to counsel
While a state may have many statutes, court decisions, or court rules governing appointment of counsel for a particular subject area, a "Key Development" is a statute/decision/rule that prevails over the others (example: a state high court decision finding a categorical right to counsel in guardianships cases takes precedence over a statute saying appointment in guardianship cases is discretionary).
Legislation, Bypass of Parental Input into Abortion - Minor
A court must appoint counsel upon request for minors seeking to bypass the parental consent requirement for an abortion. Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 36-2152(D)
One federal court has held that the requirement in Arizona that the minor request counsel does not meet the requirements for bypass procedures established by the U.S. Supreme Court. Planned Parenthood of S. Arizona and its Corporate Chapter, Arizona Women's Clinic, Inc. v. Neely, 804 F.Supp. 1210, 1217 (D. Ariz. 1992).

If "yes", the established right to counsel or discretionary appointment of counsel is limited in some way, including any of: the only authority is a lower/intermediate court decision or a city council, not a high court or state legislature; there has been a subsequent case that has cast doubt; a statute is ambiguous; or the right or discretionary appointment is not for all types of individuals or proceedings within that category.
